Last April 19th, SGS participated in “Friend of the Sea Day Spain”, at Madrid’s Wellington Hotel. In this seminar there were introduced the last advances taken by companies that have achieved product certification in compliance with Friend of the Sea (FOS) platform criteria, an Italian non-governmental certification organization for products coming both from aquiculture and sustainable fishing.

In the event, attended by representatives from the main tinned food manufacturers companies and distribution chains such as Caviar Nacarií, Pevaeche o Caviar, amongst others, the benefits for the food chain of having a rigorous seal were presented, allowing to ensure the consumers that the fish has been harvested in a responsible way.
